A 21-year-old babysitter was spared jail for having sexual intercourse with an eleven year old boy after his father defended her in court.

Jade Hatt(21) was given a suspended sentence on the grounds that she was "immature" and her victim was "unusually mature" thereby "narrowing the arithmetic age gap", the Daily Mail reported.

The boy's father, whom Hatt had previously had sexual relations with, told the court that his son was "fully up for the experience", adding that he considered it "a notch on his belt".

"I know he told her he was 15. He looks older than his years. He is sex mad".

“He would have been fully up for this experience and in many ways sees it as a notch on his belt and is totally unaffected by it.”

Prosecutor Hannah Squire told the court that Hatt 'sat astride' the boy while babysitting him last November before taking off her clothes and removing his.

"In his words she started bouncing on his private parts. Sexual intercourse took place. According to him it was fairly brief: about 45 seconds. She told him she enjoyed it, he said he had not as it was wrong", Squire told the court.

The Swindon Advertiser reported that the boy's father had called police after discovering a love bite on his neck and text messages on his mobile phone.

The judge, Tim Mousley QC told the court: "having read everything before me, it was quite clear he was a mature 11-year-old and you were an immature 20-year-old so that narrows the arithmetic age gap between you".

Saying "I have read the comments of the boy’s father to the police where he doesn’t consider you a typical 20-year-old.. I have also read what he has said about the effect on the victim", he sentenced the twenty-year-old to six months suspended for two years and ordered her to register as a sex offender. He also issued a banning order restricting her from having unsupervised contact with young boys for two years.
